Pass Or Play: Lauryn Hill Covers Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good”

June 19, 2015  |  

It looks like the Nina Simone documentary What Happened, Miss Simone? is shaping up to be a huge success. Not just from the looks of the trailer but also the soundtrack.

Earlier, we told you that Jazmine Sullivan covered Simone’s song “Baltimore” about poverty and racial injustice in the city…much like today.

As the June 26 Netflix premiere date approaches, more information about the soundtrack is coming out. Turns out, Lauryn Hill is covering “Feeling Good.”

Any decent Lauryn HIll fan can recognize that her voice has changed over the years. It’s more raspy, grittier, with perfectly timed breaks.

These changes lend itself very well to this song particularly.
